talker Is The Opposite Of “Easygoing” In Music Video For New Single

talker is back with her newest single, “Easygoing.” This is the first taste of what to expect from her anticipated debut album that drops later this year. The music video for it is a slow descent into obsessive, delulu energy that contrasts the catchy, poppy tune.

With this latest single, she enters her singer-songwriter, girlie-pop era with hypnotic guitars and soft vocals. Celeste Tauchar, the creative mind behind talker, says that while it’s her favorite piece of music she’s worked on so far, it’s “one of the scariest to release.” It isn’t due to the relaxed tone that counteracts the overall theme of wishing to be easier to deal with in certain situations but from personal realization. Tauchar explains, “I tried for so long to fit myself into the comfort zones of other people, to make dynamics work that maybe just weren’t for me. People pleasing and not asking for what I needed.” 

“I wish I could be easygoing/But that’s just not me/At least I know it/I’ll wear you out til’ you get holes in your sleeves” breezes through the chorus, making the listener do a double take. It’s early 2000s, near Disney Channel rock vibes emit familiarity yet modernize for the grown-up listener, who may be grappling with the biggest problem of all: self-acceptance. 

It’s something that Tauchar reflected on while making the song, saying, “it came from a really insecure place, where I felt like because I actually…have needs, I was destined to push people away and be too much.” From this internal struggle and gradual acceptance of being “okay with being a lot…asking for what I need,” she says, comes a song that’s short and sweet while generating memorable lyrics to entrap anyone within an appropriate listening distance.
